    Prema has excellent ways of teaching and kids come to class and enthusiastically ready to learn. I have really liked the way that she gives feedback on what they did in the class. And she is always available when the kids need her assistance. My daughter has learned how to write grammatically correct and use good vocabulary in her writing in a short period of time. I'm glad we met such a great teacher like Prema.

    My son really loves his writing lessons with Prema. He eagerly looks forward to them every week. He had a hard time before but now he is able and willing to express himself better in writing.



FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Usually we'll start the first few lessons off with some creative writing exercises to see how we can describe and think about what's around us. I like to make our lessons as interactive as possible. Once we get into a rhythm we might look at art or stories that interest you and work with them!


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I graduated in 2019 from the University of Washington with a B.A. in English (Creative Writing) and Anthropology. My first experience tutoring was as a service learner in 2015 when I was finishing my Associates degree abroad in Jamiaca. Locally, I worked with the Somali Youth and Family Club in their after school program for the 2015-2016 school year as a sercive learner and tutor. The after school program serviced elementary and middle schoolers in Tukwila. While I was there I helped implement a creative curriculum that aimed to foster self-confidence and expression. From 2016 onwards I have been tutoring one-on-one and most recently added group lessons. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Last February I drove from Seattle to Boston and it was incredible! Lots of shooting stars, sunrises and ravens in the desert. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

If you're interested in how forms of poetry can form our thoughts, how art frames our outlooks, if you want to read myths, fantasy and fiction and interact with the past - let's do it together!
